    I didn't see any other posts about this, so here goes. The was one of the closest matched games I've seen in quite a while. My initial thoughts from watching the 'Bama and Clemson in the play-offs before the Nat/Champ was that the Tigers would blow away the Tide. After the game started I had a full change of heart, it looked like Alabama would slaughter Clemson. When the second half started Clemson seemed to have gotten their second wind. Clemson with 6 seconds to go went for a touchdown to win instead of the field goal to tie, and with one second left in the 4th scored, and clinched the win. After the game they said it has been since about 1905-6 since Clemson has beat Alabama in football, it was an outstanding performance from both teams.

    Clemson definitely outplayed Bama in the 4th qtr. Deshaun Watson was the difference. He is good!

    That thought has got to strike fear into everyone going into the NFL draft this and every year. The idea of starting a new career and ending it at the same time has to have some kind of demoralizing effect on them. It doesn't seen to matter who coaches them, or even owns them for that matter, the Cleveland Browns just flat out suck.
    They had one coach in the last 25 years that could possibly turned that team around, and they fired him. That guy was Bill Belichick, look at what he did at New England, he took them from a so-so team and made them a power house.
    The Cleveland Cavaliers took the NBA title, the Cleveland Indians came in second in the World Series, the Cleveland Browns came in dead last in the NFL rankings with a 1 win and 15 loss record for the 2016-17 season. I wonder how the players at San Diego feel about getting beat by the worst team in the NFL? That has to have some kind of demoralizing effect on them.

    I would rather be the third or fourth ranked QB and go to the Cowboys.
